Arm Injury Physiotherapy
Do you have arm pain? Have you wondered what physiotherapy can do for that arm pain? When we think of physio we often think about rehab after surgery or a severe injury but it is so much more than that. Repetitive stress injuries from work or hobbies can cause pain and dysfunction and interfere with our everyday lives.
Do you have persistent numbness, tingling, pain, or weakness in your hands or arms, shoulders, or forearms? You may benefit from seeing a physiotherapist for an assessment and treatment.
Arm pain is usually considered any type of discomfort, numbness, stiffness, or general pain from the shoulders to the fingers. There are many things that can cause symptoms in the arms:
Upper Arm Injury
- Rotator cuff injury or strain
- Nerve entrapment
- Thoracic outlet syndrome
- Brachial plexus injury
- Pronator teres syndrome
- Previous fractures
- Scar tissue
- Repetitive injury
- Tennis or golfers elbow
Hand and Wrist Pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Handlebar palsy
Most people will experience some form of arm pain in their lives. Overuse, direct injury, arthritis, and nerve entrapment to name a few. As more professionals spend increasing amounts of time in front of computers the likelihood of arm pain increases. Poor posture, bad ergonomics, and bad habits are largely to blame.
Many get good results with physiotherapy for these types of arm issues. Your physiotherapist can help identify the root causes of your particular issues. They can identify weaknesses and imbalances and then work with you to correct your strength and motion to normal function.
If you are curious about physiotherapy for your particular issues and think you may benefit from an assessment for hand and arm pain, book an assessment with our physiotherapist, Veronica Rogovsky
